1/8. The musculoskeletal manifestations of Werner's syndrome.

    Werner's syndrome is a rare condition usually presenting as premature ageing in adults. Over a period of 30 years we have followed two siblings with extensive musculoskeletal manifestations including a soft-tissue tumour, insufficiency fractures, nonunion and tendonitis, with associated problems of management. The literature is reviewed.

2/8. A new consideration in athletic injuries. The classical ballet dancer.

    The professional ballet dancer presents all of the problems of any vigorous athlete. The problems include osteochondral fractures, fatigue fractures, sprains, chronic ligamentous instability of the knee, meniscal tears, impingement syndrome, degenerative arthritis of multiple joints and low back pain. attention to minor problems with sound conservative therapy can avoid many major developments and lost hours. Observations included the extraordinary external rotation of at the hip without demonstrable alteration in the hip version angle and hypertrophy of the femur, tibia and particularly the second metatarsal (in female dancers). Careful evaluation of the range of motion of the extremities, serial roentgenographic examination, and systematic review of previous injuries, training programs and rehearsal techniques have been evaluated in a series of cases to provide the basis for advice to directors and teachers of the ballet.

3/8. Stress fractures of the lesser metatarsals after a Wilson osteotomy for correction of hallux valgus deformity.

    This article describes a patient with lesser-metatarsal stress fractures resulting from an oblique Wilson displacement first metatarsal osteotomy. The shortening of the first metatarsal forces the lesser metatarsals to bear the weight previously borne by the first ray and increases the compression stress on the adjacent metatarsal heads. The proximal displacement of the osteotomy must be minimized in order to limit the risk of stress fracture of the lesser metatarsals.

4/8. Stress fracture of the first metatarsal after Keller bunionectomy.

    Complications following the Keller bunionectomy procedure are reviewed. The authors particularly reference metatarsal stress fractures. They describe a first metatarsal fracture sustained postoperatively in a 58-year-old diabetic patient.

5/8. An unusual complication of the Keller bunionectomy: spontaneous stress fractures of all lesser metatarsals.

    The authors describe the etiology and pathomechanics of the more commonly encountered complications of the Keller bunionectomy with an unusual case report wherein a patient sustained spontaneous fractures of all lesser metatarsals after the Keller procedure.

6/8. Posttraumatic development of hallux valgus.

    An uncommon etiologic factor of hallux valgus was encountered in two patients. Crush injury and gunshot wound of the foot were associated with metatarsal bone fractures. malunion of the second metatarsal and malunion of an avulsed fracture at the base of the proximal phalanx of the big toe, resulted in a symptomatic hallux valgus deformity.

7/8. Stress fracture of the second metatarsal after Keller bunionectomy.

    This paper presents a case of stress fracture of the second metatarsal after a Keller bunionectomy. Symptomatology of the lesser metatarsals has been documented as an occasional sequela of the Keller procedure. The following case illustrates the insidious nature of this complication, which is best prevented by the use of an orthotic with a Morton's extension.

8/8. Sequential metatarsal stress fractures after Keller arthroplasty with implant.

    The occurrence of single stress fractures after Keller arthroplasties has been documented. This paper presents a case of sequential stress fractures of metatarsals two and three after Keller arthroplasty with hemi-phalangeal implant. It is the author's view that failure to recognize and properly treat the fracture of the second metatarsal led to the additional fracture of the third metatarsal. Furthermore, the use of a nonrigid orthotic with metatarsal padding is recommended postoperatively to decrease the probability of this complication.
